Need help on locator scripts

Discussion created by anjali09 on Apr 2, 2012
I was modifying one example script from online ESRI's resource. Changed the projection information, basemap url, locator url.  For some reason the "Locate" button always returns to a point, instead of an extent area. I am very new in js, please kindly help me.

the code is as following: *.html
